Release Notes: This release brings many new features. The first of them is the introduction of a 'route' type. OSM contributors will be pleased to discover the new features allowing them to download their own GPX tracks from the OSM server. Many more features concern the GUI. Finally, an old feature is restored: the ability to access the Google service for finding a route.

Release Notes: Lot of new features were made. GPS device access is now supported via a new "GPS layer". The track properties dialog now displays interactive time information. The tools are contextual: if a tool has no meaning for the current selection, it is disabled. The Cut/Copy/Paste actions are available via the "Edit" menu and popup menus. Positions (lat/lon) can be entered in multiple formats: DDD/DMM/DMS (ex: 3.5, 3°30.0, 3°30'0.00). Map sections are displayed while downloading (a manual refresh is no longer required). It is possible to enable/disable some map sources at configuration time (eg. --disable-google).

Release Notes: This is a testing release only. It is made on the 0.1.1 version, improved with modifications made up to the 2007-01-28. A new layer is available to upload/download directly to/from a GPS device. It is now possible to disable some things with configure options (--disable-google, --disable-terraserver, and --disable-expedia).

Release Notes: This release concerns a branch of Viking dedicated to modularization. It's experimental work. This release contains some modifications so it is possible to disable some features at configuration time. See "./configure --help" for more information.

Release Notes: New map sources have been added, including Google. It is now possible to drag and drop layers and way/trackpoints and copy/paste between vikings. A "smart" copy that can parse a lat/lon from Web pages like geocaching.com and emails was added. In the properties of a layer, it is now possible to consult graphs of altitude/velocity. An experimental "acquire" features allows the importing of data from GPS, Google directions, and Geocaching.com. The gpx file format is now supported.
